EBAN, the European Business Angel Network, and EVPA are partnering to strengthen collaboration between their respective networks and build the European impact investing space together.
With this partnership, EBAN and EVPA aim to create synergies to ensure impact becomes more embedded in the entrepreneurship ecosystem. We will connect our respective communities to share knowledge and promote best practices. We will also work together to collect and harmonise data on impact investment practices and trends from across Europe, so as to provide a more comprehensive analysis of the market.
“Business angels are key when it comes to supporting entrepreneurs and innovative start-ups, and can play a critical role in fostering an impact mindset by adopting investing for impact practices in early stages”, said Roberta Bosurgi, EVPA CEO. “We look forward to building bridges and sharing knowledge with the EBAN network to further enable a thriving European impact ecosystem.”
“EBAN is delighted to start this collaboration with EVPA. This new partnership will allow us to pursue our common goals in promoting and advancing impact investment”, said Jacopo Losso, EBAN Director. “We have always been committed to meaningful impact investing, as is evident by our actions, and working together with EVPA will allow us to double down on that commitment” he added.
EVPA, the investing for impact community, is a unique network at the intersection of business and purpose, driven by knowledge and focused on impact. We work to increase prosperity and social progress for all, fix inequalities and injustices and preserve the planet. We rally people, capital, knowledge, and data to catalyse, innovate and scale impact. EVPA brings together a diverse group of capital providers (impact funds, corporations, foundations, private equity, banks, public funders) and social innovators of all sorts – from household names to emerging new players.
